Gummo was also one of the five Marx Brothers, although he never made it into the movies. And for some reason I wrote his name first.

Yes, but if like the others above you typed it without really knowing why (I went "Zeppo, no, Gummo!") you don't half feel a fool when the "right" answer shows up. A comedy giant of the 20th Century.

They were most known for comic and satiric operas - Victorian stage performances which poked fun at their fellow Brits. Surprised you've never heard of them. You've probably heard some of the songs or famous lines but didn't know the origins. "It's love that makes the world go 'round," or "He did nothing in particular and did it very well."

Hugely famous and talented. I'm stunned you don't know them. Gilbert and Sullivan operas are often performed at English public (private) schools and at Grammar schools where "posh" boys dress up as women.

Even if you don't know the names Gilbert & Sullivan or their works, I'll bet you'd know at least one of their songs if you heard it... "I am the very model of a modern Major-General, I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral..."

Huh. I did what lots of people did and read 'desert' as 'dessert' but I typed in gobi anyway because for some reason I thought it was the name of some sort of sweet dumpling. Clearly my subconscious managed to trick my stupid conscious thought process somehow.

Can I be a little bit picky? Gilbert should not be characterised as a "song-writer", as he and Sullivan composed operas, not songs. Thank you!

I might have to be picky and say that their style was more operetta - closer to musicals than opera in many ways. And the pieces are often described as songs.

It's all "general knowledge". The 2nd busiest airport serving London is as obscure to anyone outside of Great Britain as the University of Florida mascot is to anyone outside of the US. Deal with it.

Jul 8, 2015
Here in Belgium, I learned in English course that the two main airports in London are Heathrow and Gatwick, and I never forgot that. On the other hand, it's not too hard to guess that a Floridian mascot could be a(n) (alli)gator.
+1
level 74
Jul 8, 2015
That's the point I was making. If the second busiest airport in one city is general knowledge, then so is a university mascot. General knowledge is information about many different subjects usually learned over time, rather than detailed information learned about one subject. I thought this quiz did a good job. Of 24 clues, only 4 dealt solely with the US. BTW, the first time I took this quiz I didn't know the airport answer. The second time I took it I did. I learned from the quiz which is the reason I take them. The only quizzes I don't take are those written in another language. (Or those about soccer/futbol. I just can't seem to remember the players names no matter how many times I take the quizzes, although for some reason I do manage to remember Beckham.)

Here in Australia, with six friends present, I said "General Knowledge Questions" and I asked "What is the second busiest airport in the London area?:,,,,,,,, 4 got Gatwick, 2 couldn't bring the name Gatwick to mind......... Then I asked the same 6 what is the mascot of the University of Florida ........... they all started laughing. That about sums it up.

Stats don't lie. Gator is sitting at 52% while Gatwick is at 48%. I'd say the mascot is more well-known. And as @GameKitty said, Gatorade is certainly a well-known beverage in many countries.

Surely that's more to do with the fact most people who take these quizes are American? The Florida Uni mascot is just something non Americans (or at least non north Americans) have NO CHANCE of knowing. Gatwick airprot does make the news from time to time, and it is one of the biggest/busiest airports in the world. American College sport is not watched ANYWHERE outside of America.
